Clos d'Alzan Côtes du Rhône Villages Signargues 2016
For everyday drinking it is very hard to beat the wines of the Southern Rhône. This grenache and syrah Côtes du Rhône from an excellent vintage makes for fine drinking in this cold winter weather.
Marked with warm days and cool nights, the weather conditions of 2016 were outstanding in Southern Rhône, and so is this Clos d'Alzan at under £12. A top wine to enjoy now or keep in the cellar for the next 3 years.
How does the wine taste?
A bright mid ruby-purple, the nose is lively and perfumed with plenty of peppery dark fruits. Well structured on the palate with a full and lingering finish, a lovely concentration of floral dark berry flavours.
What do the critics say?
"The 2016 Clos dAlzan Côtes du Rhône-Villages Signargues, a single vineyard wine of great style and modest price, is hearty fare and no mistake. Full, rich and spicy with gloriously succulent ripe, dark fruit, it slips down very, very easily and shows what fine value can still be found in the Rhône." - Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
